RELATIONSHIP MYTHS TO STOP BELIEVING RIGHT NOW
In our world, there are a lot of relationship myths. These are misguided ideas about love and relationships that our society has grown to accept as truth, spouting them to the next generations as given facts of romantic wisdom. The cycle of these love lies continues on and on, reflected in popular culture and the media. I’m here to tell you that many of the ideas about relationships out there are absolute crap.
THERE’S ONE PERSON FOR EVERYONE.
Look for someone who makes you better, who encourages you to to meet your own destiny and your own potential and become the best version of yourself. Find a partner who challenges you, believes in you, and is willing to work to create a solid, lasting future with you. It may not be destiny, but it’s two people consciously choosing to build a foundation of love and commitment. Isn’t that way more awesome?

You’re getting married; you’re not dead! This is a funny quote, but there’s a lot of truth there. Just because you’re in a long-term relationship or married does not mean your ability to feel attracted to other people is going to shut down.
RELATIONSHIPS SHOULD BE EASY.
Relationships are work because we are human people and we are naturally flawed. And when you put two people together to share a home or a life? There’s bound to be friction.
